Summer Reading

Summertime and the livin' is easy.

Ira Gershwin, Porgy & Bess - Summertime

The kids are out of school, it's a time of family vacations and 4th of July celebrations. Whether you're getting ready for a long weekend or looking for a way to keep busy while waiting at the dentist office, the 'net is full of suggestions to keep you in good reading materials.

Slate Magazine went directly to the source and asked popular novelists, critics and journalists for their suggestions for the best beach read. Or you could use the suggestions from bookstores located near famous bodies of water -- such as Santa Cruz or Nantucket. Even NPR has a list.
Newspapers make reading lists too - The Telegraph, Times Online, LA Times, Wall Street Journal.

Scholastic Books has lists for all ages to keep young readers busy during the summer. The American Library Association has a big list of suggestions for kids.

And don't forget about Sullivan Library's Paperback Exchange. Bring a book and take a book from our paperback collection - we have fiction choices for a variety of reading tastes. Come by and take a look!
